The packaging seems a little old school, but the wine inside the bottle more than holds its own. The nose is pure and rich, like molasses. And there are no weaknesses in the mouth, where chocolate, brown sugar and prune flavors dominate. Broad through the finish, but never clumsy. An excellent sweet wine from Spain.
